That's great!  The only thing I would add is if your machine eats fabric, leave the foot end longer.  That way you have more allowance.
Ditto. It's very scary to see your hard work vanishing into the feed-dogs!
Not that your poppet becomes dog feed! Unless your dog likes safety eyes, right, Hablingfrau? Hahahaha!
Sorry I couldn't help it.

Normal sized poppet.  Her name is Addie, she is comfortable with her nudity. 



65% poppet.  I need some eyes though Sad  And the body is all lopsided, and the ears are bad Sad Sad

Thanks Ghilie  Grin . After thinking about it it makes more sense, as for sewing her on the sewing machine....I think I will have to hand stitch the curvey parts. My sewing machine only knows how to go one speed... Way to fast. Cheesy

He he, love the sequins. ^-~

So many fun new poppets.

Omgoodness at the tiny head!

Welcome new poppeters!

Ambo, I love that your little blue poppet has different ears. Mine are always slightly different. lol. I can never sew the same line twice.

Ditto. and forget sewing it backwards! Or in the reverse. But hair covers a multitude of evils. Also Gloria's body is a bit lopsided but I placed her arms and legs fairly straight and it's not too noticable. Smiley

Every single poppet I have made has a crooked body.  If the arm and leg placement doesn't hide it, clothes will!
